Previewing Changes

To preview your work as you edit you must set up two python packages that are used to create this site using MkDocs. They are mkdocs, and mkdocs-bootswatch.

Review Properly Installing Python for help getting Python installed. MkDocs works with Python 2.7, 3.3+, and pypy.

  • Install python modules
$ cd <loopdocs project location>
$ pip install -r requirements.txt

mkdocs Version Warning: Use the latest 0.16.x patch version of mkdocs, but don't upgrade mkdocs to version 0.17.x. It is NOT compatible with the theme being used. Same for updated versions of mkdocs-bootswatch, do not use the latest version.

  • Or, install modules individually
$ pip install mkdocs<0.17
$ pip install mkdocs-bootswatch==0.4.0
  • Run mkdocs server locally
$ cd <loopdocs project location>
$ mkdocs serve
  • Preview docs in browser. Most changes will update automatically as you edit. Configuration and navigation changes will require restarting the mkdocs server.
  • Optionally, you can share the preview with others by uploading them to your repository's gh-pages branch
$ mkdocs gh-deploy


  • Use images for clarity whenever appropriate


Admonitions are a markdown extension that enable formatted blocks for visually calling out information. The types are: note, info, warning, and danger. Here are some examples of how to write the markdown:

!!! note
    This admonition uses the default title: 'Note'.

!!! info "My Custom Title"
    This admonition is blue and has a custom title.

!!! warning ""
    This admonition is yellow and has no title.
